Work : The blouse is knitted in the round in Stockinette Stitch, from the top and downwards. First, the high folded neckline is knitted and hereafter the yoke is shaped by using the technique German Short Rows. To give the blouse its airy and draped effect, double increases are made at the upper part of the yoke, which will also secure that it becomes longer in the back. The remaining yoke, as well as body, is then worked in the round until reaching the bottom edge, where a finishing i-cord is knitted. The puffy sleeves are shaped by rounds of increasing and decreasing and are finished with an i-cord edge. Lastly, a thin elastic band is inserted from the WS into 2 rows on each sleeve to make them puffy.
